. if the republican party had a slicker version, more human version of romney, alessa beta version, they might have gone further and won. that was lucky for the democrats. tavis: you have given me a wonderful segue which is now what the future of the gop is. what kind of person into the future, i have -- do they have to put up given the demographic shifts in this country? >> they are running around like chickens with their heads cut off. their first impulse is marco rubio for president because we need latinos and he is a cuban- american. that put him up there. i think they're going to have to realize that if they really want to be effective they're going to have to change some policies. they cannot find biffar managers with it -with existing policies. there will have to cling to and believe in their small government believes and what they will do is try to find ways to put a kinder, gentler, ideally for them, hispanic female, african-american faces on the same old same old. they have tried in recent times. the conservative principles, the conservative movement has been pretty resilient. in 1964 aft

than mitt romney or any republican would have the ability to do. let me add, there is this amazing analysis from john goldsmith, from the harvard faculty, who said when president of his re-election will mean is the policies of dick cheney and george bush that are not so controversial, will be permanently shielded from criticism in what -- in a way that romney could never have achieved because democrats and progressives under obama will ignore those policies and cheer for them, whereas if romney had been elected, their interest in these issues and opposition to them would have been revitalized. i think this is the pattern see over and over. even if obama is the lesser of two evils, he is more effective of the two evils. i think that is the analysis that was missing so profoundly up to the election. >> we will take a break, then come back to glenn greenwald. back in a moment. ♪ [music break] >> this is "democracy now!,", the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman with nermeen shaikh. our guest is glenn greenwald, author of, "with libery and justice for some: how the

in mitt romney and other republicans, colbert offered up a response to his own donors. >> karl is in big trouble. they're going to take his thumbs. and karl is almost all thumb. i took a lot of money for my super pac and my 501c-4 colbert super pac s-h-h, which stands for shh. okay? money from some anonymous scary donors. that's not pixilated. that's his face. listen, fellows, i didn't waste your money. running a super pac is expensive. i mean, we had legitimate costs. we had handling costs, and we had legal fees, and the biggest expense, almost $90,000 of it was for the commercials the super pac ran while i was kind of sort of running for president of south carolina. i wasn't even in charge of the super pac then. >> in his home state of south carolina, of course, colbert was at one point polling ahead of a legitimate candidate, jon huntsman. >>> next, people in the other -- over 30 states have submitted petitions to the white house asking that their states be allowed to secede from the union on the heels of president obama's re-election. one petition from texas has 70,000 signatures. la

. republican when mitt romney floated the idea of capping tax deductions? big story in the "new york times" today. so, could this pave the way for a deal? maybe some real tax reformulator on. who knows. james free man of the "wall street journal" page. i saw the inner view. i think that president obama i'm givie ining him the benefit of doubt. and i'm going to say this, obama is to the right of the labor unions and the big laborral interest groups. you know why, i think obama is going to buy into his camp without raising the marginal tax rates and i think he will look at eligibility extension and cost of list reductions and i think he is a centerist right now. ji think he said we are going to compromise. if you are serious about it. he zoo tais talking to everybod. he is saying i'm going to talk to everybody. one other thing that i want to say, i was rereading the spees. president obama proposed this idea that then romney also proposed. so this idea has been out there for a while. but if we can agree on that flt that is the most important thing. number one the majority of the american supp

was it different than i thought it would be? i'll give you just one example. romney did worse with asian americans than with latino americans. now, nobody on the republican side looked at that and thought about it. that should be very troubling. and, you know, you don't go to a wal-mart or a costco or target and say "the customers are really stupid, they picked the wrong store last week." you go and you say "what is it i didn't understand about what the customer needed? " and you can do it as a conservative. >> stephen: but how do we reach out to the latinos and the his panicos out there when the candidate that we just supported said they should self-deport. that's an unpopular -- we can't just go 180. we can't just say -- >> well, 180 would be self-import.

is centerleft. but it's all compared to. compared to governor romney, and i think really the republican party, including the statements that todd akin and richard murdoch made, it seemed like they were are off from the center. as an independent, i can give advice to both parties. >> ronald reagan and jack kemp -- the party of upward mobility, that didn't seem to be the republican party this year. now, maybe it was because of this very effective attack campaign against mitt romney and bain capital and 47% of all that stuff. but i think hispanics and asians -- and a lot of women, they didn't vote for the republican party not just if you are hispanic because you think their anti-immigrant, but because it doesn't seem like the kind of party that will create a country in which you are were going to have a chance to rise. it seems, by their own statement and also by the definition the democrats gave them, is a more exclusive thing. if republicans don't change that, their future is not good enough let me just say that it he would've been allowed to be out there a little bit more -- he was a jack kem

and asked 20 romney voters about the election, president obama and the future of the republican party. >> i want a show of hands how many of you were surprised about the outcome. almost all of you were surprised. >> i cried. >> why would you cry? >> because i was so sure that mitt romney would win. i thought his ticket was perfect. and i thought his message was resonating with people that they were prepared to vote for him. >> this election is really about saving america. and in get real emotional about that because i look at what we've done with this country and i see that it's going totally in the wrong direction and i looked at romney and ryan and i thought yes, somebody who is accomplished in business, somebody who will get out there and make a difference and ryan with his financial background and the budget and all that i thought man. >> not a good day for the republican party. what are your willing to change? >> the platform needs re-evaluated. >> the keep thing he keeps bringing up where are the blacks and latino and the women. >> you're right. the danger it's getting into a bidding

to notice and i'll also point out that paul ryan is the republican in the romney campaign who said look, let's go campaign among black voters, even though they're not voting for us, because if we're the republican party of opportunity for everybody, that's where we ought to be among the part of the economy that needs help the most. >> david, i want to ask you about something else the congressman said today. abc asked him whether or not the president had a mandate. here's what he had to say. >> the president wins 300 some electoral votes, every battleground state with the exception of north carolina. does barack obama now have a mandate? >> i don't think so, because they also re-elected the house republicans, so whether people intended or not, we've got divided government. >> you don't think it's a mandate here? >> i don't, because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. >> david, do you buy that? democrats gain in both the house and the senate. the president won the popular vote, well over 300 electoral votes and by big majorities, they told exit poll

a republican. i did vote for romney, the election is over, and i think our republican representatives should represent the republicans of the party. i wish the president obama would have opened up to the mom-and- pop businesses instead of the big corporations and the unions that were there yesterday. i do not feel the $250,000 c going it is fair. those people struggle to employ people. to keep communities going, restaurants, franchises, grocery stores. it seems like the corporations are taking over the mom and pop, and i hope the representatives in congress keep representing the republicans. host: nancy, what you think about letting taxes increase of people who make $1 million or more? caller: it is not a bad idea, but i find it ironic. this is the first time everything president bush did is respected by the democrats. that is up to our leaders in congress, $250,000 is ridiculous. i think it is a job killer along with other regulations and obama-care. guest: it raises the great question. why should small businesses and families pay higher taxes to pay for president obama's spending? it is no

news conference, rick santorum appeared to have the edge over mitt romney in republican primaries, and the first campaign reallily was two months away. that was back in march 6th. fast forward to today we want to bring in briana keiller. it's expected that the fiscal cliff is going to be a big topic, but also the scandal that broke about the former cia chief, david petraeus. how does the president essentially stay on message and move on to the economy? >> well, is he going to be trying to turn this to the economy, suzanne, but the fact is he will be definitely getting questions about the scandal, about general petraeus, and certainly about his faith in general allen, so that is going to be a topic. he will try to pivot to the economy and to talk about the fiscal cliff, which is obviously his number one priority trying to get that resolved, and we also expect that he will be here talking -- or he will be asked about benghazi. this will be his first press conference since that september 11th attack in egypt that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. as well

? okay, but what about the conservative media coverage that falsely hyped up romney? >> the number of debates we had was jaw-dropping. most of the time we had some liberal media figure whose intention was to depict the republican party and conservatives as some kind of nut fringe group. >> that's the ticket. when in doubt, blame the liberal media. if i lost $300 million, i guess i would come up with excuses, too. >>> joining me now, host and producer of "hawk post live" and nia malika henderson from the washington post. thank you both for being here. >> thank you very much. >> great to be here. >> abby, is rove just making excuses? >> he said it. we lost because of the date of the convention. can you believe it? it's like we are watching a mental breakdown on national television with karl rove. he's right. the ground game is important. what we are seeing now is the blame game being played out. i don't think the ground game is what the problem was. the problem was they didn't -- romney and his team didn't have a message. they didn't have ideas. you could have the best ground game in

agenda. i'm not sure what base mitt romney represents right now within the republican party. but it would be a wonderful gesture. and i think it's the right thing and the right tone for the president to set. >> cornell, why are you smiling? >> because i'm stunned. i don't know what base mitt romney represents in the republican party. he was your nominee. he was the guy at the top of your ticket. what base he represents. look, the president, he did the right thing by reaching out to mitt romney. and he did the right thing by the way he opened his press conference talking about a letter from a gentleman who didn't vote for him but he understands he's got to work for that gentleman who didn't vote for him just the way he worked for the people who in fact voted for him. it was a great noble gesture, but that's the sort of leadership we need to sort of move this country forward. can't just be about your base. it has to be about the people who also worked gebs you got to be able to reach across the aisle and work with those people. i think it was a fantastic gesture by the president. >> all rig

romney's former testimony adsors. to find out why texas republican congressman louie gohmert. thanks for joining us tonight. >> glad to be with you. melissa: what do you think is t answer to this problem? >> i think whatever mitt romney's closest advisors say is probably not the answer because we had a referendum on tha but, gosh, the answer is very, very clear, melissa. the president's own people have said that he has said it repeatedly, everybody should pay their fair share. now do think we probably should set up a line of poverty and below that no tax, but set up a flat tax. if you make more, you pay more. if you make less, you pay less. only ha two deductions for mortgage interest and also for charitable deductions. rest of it goes away. and let's make t capital gains 15%. let's leave it 15%. make a flat income tax of 15%. t's make the gift tax 15%. make estate tax 15%. you willee the economy explode. you will see all kinds of revenue come in. use the president's own words. everybody should pay their fair share of flatax. melissa: i couldn't agree with you more. it is a fantast

. as for urban areas? romney and ryan lost. there is an obvious connection to the republican policy. african-american, latino, young voters, they simply do not buy ryan's approach, and that is every man for himself. let's turn to ohio state senator nina turner. senator, good to have you with us tonight. i think this is important because this is an admission that their voter suppression did not work, and turnout does work. all of the talk before the election did connect with people. information is power. motivation is what makes it happen. ryan doesn't see a connection between his policy proposals and his ticket's -- and the gop ticket defeat. what do you make of that? >> well, i have two words for congressman ryan and the other gop who are out of touch with this. seek help. the fact they don't understand that urban folks, i.e., factory workers, auto workers, teachers, police officers, nurses, students, the elderly, african-americans, whites, latinos that live in the urban area renewed president obama's contract because they believe that what his policies are for the better interest of those

with that take. i think that republicans aren't hostile to the interests of minority voters. but what i do think is fair is that when you look at the folks who voted for mitt romney, 88% of them were non hispanic whites. >> non-hispanic whites. >> exactly, non-hispanic whites, and what that implies is that when you're in these conversations among conservatives sometimes when you don't have people from these other groups who can engage in these conversations you miss a great deal. and that's one reason why there are a lot of conservatives, myself included, who believe that we do have messages, ideas and strategies that would be relevant for achieving economic uplift and much else. but the problem is that when you don't have a more diverse group of people who are part of the conversation, then i think that it makes it very hard to translate that message to folks who are inclined to distrust. >> i would say that if you are going to target voters on the basis of the fact that they are african american or the fact that they are latino and try to prevent them from voting on that basis, voter suppressi

he's oversized -- i didn't mean to say it that way -- he is emotionally powerful. mitt romney was always calculating. you hope when we had get into the next round of elections, the republicans will say we need somebody who can be authentic because the public does, in fact, value that. one of the things, we're seeing, you talked about warfare in the republican party that's beginning, they seem to have realized sort of collectively immigration is a place where they've got to change their tune. they can't write off the latino vote. that's good. the tax battle, they're still sort of struggling. you got bill crystal willing to say taxing the rich is okay. even on that issue, do you think there will be beacons of hope in the republican party who are willing to speak to fairness a bit more? >> i think we see that already. i think it is easier for them to move on an issue like taxes because afterall, many people in the republican party before them moved on taxes. most notably reagan. all they have to do is look up what h
